Happy Fathers Day


This fathers day I hope that you feel love even though you are miles away from family. As I was in my kitchen I started to think of all the many ways you have blessed my life and taught me. Here are a few ways I appreciate and love you. . .

You have taught me my Faith of which has helped me through tough times. I have many memories of just having Fun, whether it be playing glue, airplane or just play hard. Now it is so fun to see you do similiar things with my children, and how they adore you.

You have shown me how to have a positive outlook or Attitude with situations in life, always so optimistic and I love that.

You taught me to try to spend Time with family, even though it might have seemed you always were working, I can see now with your sacrificing you also tried to bring our family together. This is something that is very important to me now in my own family. We appreciated you coming to spend time with us at Lagoon. You also Taught me the Gospel of which I am so grateful for.
You are an example of Hard Work. I can see how much you love and want for your family.
There is no mistaking this one. You have taught us to Eat right and take care of our Heavenly vessels. I know this has blessed me and my family and many others who are so grateful.
You gave me my name Rose. You have taught me to honor, love and respect our Savior and Redeemer. The relationship I have with Him could not be if you had not taught me about His life.

There are many other things you are and I wanted to list a few. . .Thank you. I love you Dad.

Simple Surprise

Handsome this morning said he needed to go to the bank and he'd be right back. He came home and quickly covered my eyes as I was in the middle of my Kundalini and said keep them closed. Then he said do you want a surprise now or later. Of course I responded now. He guided me into our bathroom and there on the shower door hung a new navy silk sash dress and a blazer with a matching navy hue tie. I was shocked, he then asked me if I would go to Prom with him. You all know I was never asked to Prom or any "high school dance" for that fact. So that is where he was this morning:) making his plans. I love him. Since the day we met he has given me simple sweet surprises that surpass any grandiose adventure I've had in my life. . .I love him. He had me try on the dress and then tied the sash above my baby belly and then said and you have to wear your hair down. You all know I am not feeling the prettiest lately but oh how he can make me feel gorgeous. I love him. Off we go to second chance prom tonight, a second chance and only chance I've ever had.

Mom Models

It was so fun to be with Mom this weekend. We had so much fun. We took the kids to a few movies,Zupas and red Mango, the zoo and swimming. It is so nice to have her here to keep me company and help with the kids. One night she brought Granny's model portfolio and we looked through her model shots. . . she was so gorgeous.  It brought back memories. . . Its funny to think not only are we all only daughters but we also were all models for years. . . I often don't tell people and am not necessarily proud that I did, its just interesting that we all did. I guess when I look at it that way it is something to be proud of, fun times.  My Mom however said it was not so fun for her to send me to Europe, but I thank her for allowing me to follow what "I thought" was my dream, I learned so much. Little did I realize my life now, as it is, IS my dream.
